Koura Bay Mount Fyffe Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Named after the peak overlooking the town of Kaikoura, this Marlborough wine is fermented in contact with American oak 'beans', rather than barrel-fermented, and matured on its yeast lees in tanks. The pale 2003 vintage is crisp and simple, with lemony, appley flavours that lack any real richness and complexity.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Named after the peak overlooking the town of Kaikoura, the 2002 vintage of this Marlborough wine is a straightforward wine with fresh, lively, appley flavours. Fermented in contact with American oak 'beans' and lees-aged, with 70 per cent malolactic fermentation, it's a simple but attractive wine.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
Named after the peak overlooking the town of Kaikoura, the 2000 vintage of this Marlborough wine is clean, fresh and vibrant, with citrus and tropical-fruit flavours and subtle oak (from six months' maturation on yeast lees in old oak barriques). A finely balanced, delicious drink-young style, it's full-bodied, crisp and lively, with good intensity.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; the bouquet offers quite attractive citrus/melon fruit, slightly simple but nonetheless appealing. The palate offers nicely handled fruit flavours, with well-judged creamy cashew mlf on a light-bodied wine.
